WASHINGTON — The Big East will have a media event Tuesday for the first time in its four-year history to promote the technology to its members.
The conference announced Tuesday that the game will be televised at 3 p.m.
ET on ESPNU, which is the new home of the Big 12 Network.
The Big East, which also includes Cincinnati and New Orleans, will host the game in Cincinnati’s new home.
It will also televise the game on ESPN3.
The game will feature five teams from the conference, as well as the University of Cincinnati.
The Big Ten and Pac-12 are also scheduled to televise it, along with ESPN3 and ESPNU.
The conference also announced a partnership with Amazon, a media partner that will televise college football, and the Big Ten Network.
“We are thrilled to be able to bring this new technology to the Big East,” Big East commissioner Bob Bowlsby said in a statement.
“It will make it easier for fans and players to get up close and personal with their teams, which we know will enhance the atmosphere and fan experience.”
The conference said the game, which was created to bring fans closer to the action, will be streamed live on the BigEast.com site and on its mobile apps.
It is expected to be played from the Cincinnati stadium, which will be built on a vacant site that the Big Eight used for its home games.
Bowlsby also said that the conference will use the game as a platform to promote its new technology, which he called the “Big Ten Game of the Week.”
The league’s president, Jim Delany, said Tuesday that he is excited to have the opportunity to showcase the conference’s new technology.
He said the conference is looking forward to hosting a conference championship football game.
“I am thrilled to have this opportunity to be a part of this game and showcase the technology that the NCAA is developing to bring the sport closer to fans,” Delany said in the statement.
